“This dual usage of space within a school compound offers urban planners an innovative way to provide more covered spaces for students to engage in outdoor activities while concurrently addressing the need for renewable energy,” a company spokesperson said.

“Powering up a basketball court rooftop is just the beginning. We look forward to bringing more novel green solutions and to instilling in the young the importance of adopting sustainable practices in their everyday lives,” the spokesperson added.
The company completed a 535kWp rooftop solar system at the same school in October last year.
